Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting out vs. Jays

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:19:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has picked up at the dish. He currently sports a five-game hitting streak and .871 OPS over his past 10 outings. He is a low-end catcher option in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 12-for-75 this season, and at this point, he shouldn't be targeted in any fantasy format.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart suffers foot injury

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 19:20:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) exited in the fifth inning against the Kansas City Royals with an apparent foot injury Saturday, June 20. He was replaced by C Sandy Leon.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) was 2-for-2 with a double before being lifted, but he has been a fringe option at best since joining the Red Sox. He definitely needs to be avoided until he is 100% healthy. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting just .161 this year and has no value at FantasyScore if he sees additional starts going forward.
